    Enho vs. Ichinojo?

    I just realised this myself yesterday. It's a very exciting prospect.

    "Exhausted from interacting with the association". Okay buddy.

    2019 a new record low most wins of the year ?

    Mitakeumi for 12+ and Ozeki by January. Of course I was on the bandwagon for his last Ozeki run and remember how that ended up :(.

    It can be two things.

    Terunofuji is looking pretty good for a Juryo return in January imo.
  6. Man it's an interesting premise. I would switch out Endo and Abi for Ichinojo and Tamawashi (with Tochi ahead of both). But I may be guilty of letting past performance influence that somewhat.

    Just let me have my obvious bias already! But yes, you're both right.

    A healthy Takayasu would be winning this tournament. I still hold out hope he'll one day wear the tsuna.

    All valid points, and I by no means would be surprised to see a Tochi henka. I just don't necessarily expect it. To clarify, I don't think Tochi will 'feel sorry' for Keisho. I think it's more the case that a henka against Endo could be pragmatically justified. But a henka against someone who's been out nearly two basho and who an Ozeki should be able to beat? It's a harder sell, especially for someone as competitive as Tochi. But yeah, we've seen him bust out the Henka against Kak a couple of tournaments back, and against Endo here. I'm sure his desperation is as high as it's ever been. The DRAMA, people!

    I don't see it happening. Tochi looked disgusted with himself after henka-ing Endo, but I get the desperation given his position and Endo's recent success over him. Even though he's in good form; Takakeisho is still coming back from a long-term injury himself. I think Tochi would have too much pride to pull a move like that against a less than 100% opponent in a similar position to himself. But, what the hell do I know? Gotta love the drama.

    I'm actually really high on Tomokaze, and see him as a future ozeki at least. But, I'm a newer fan, he's a newer rikisihi, what the hell do I know? That said I'm keeping this for bragging rights when he makes ozeki in 2020.

    Takayasu kyujo-Aki 2019

    As a huge Takayasu fan, this news makes me very happy. The last thing I want is for him to go the way of Kisenosato. Best he rests and comes back strong in November.
